Hopi-drum player Dashmesh Khalsa, and the assembled trio conjures up a musical exploration of ancient mystery, haunting memory, and shadowy visions. I once described Metcalf’s earlier CD, The Shaman’s Heart, as “a trip way up river into the heart of a … rainforest.” Dream Tracker goes even further, leaving the boat behind and continuing the journey on foot, heading into an uncharted jungle landscape where the native peoples still practice the “old ways,” surrounded by the Earth Mother’s exotic flora and fauna. To Be Home David Newman Nutone Music David Newman (vocals, gui tar, omnichord) continues to infuse his chants and mantras with a pronounced and enjoy-able folk music sensibility on To Be Home. Mira (vocals, cajon, percussion) receives co-billing on the CD’s cover, but there are many other artists present as well, including a large number of chanters who are in f ine voice throughout and instru-menta l ist s playing everything from cello to bansuri to Hammond B3 (oh, yeah!) and electric bass. The gentle yet rocking melodies and rhythms put a friendly, contemporary spin on the chants without undercutting their spirituality. Newman also graces the listener with some English language singing (the wonderful “Heartsong”), as well as interspersing English with mantras on assorted tracks. To Be Home is another winner from Newman. Delicate compositions, featuring a subtle blend of saxophone, clarinet, flute and piano, create ambient auras that relax the mind and caress the soul.
